Elida’s first album, “Ora doci Ora margos” (Sweet Times Bitter Times), is based entirely on the singer’s early life and the sweet and bitter experiences that shaped her humble existence. Elida Almeida wrote the words and music of most of the songs on this first record and sings with a touching sincerity that will move all those who identify with her story. With its folk melodies enhanced by Santiago beats (batuque, funana and morna) and uplifted by the subtle arrangements of guitarist Hernani Almeida, this album has the power to roll back frontiers and conquer the world.
